However, it was announced last month that this popular scheme will stop accepting applications five months before it officially ends in March next year. The deadline for final applications is 6pm on 31st October 2022 and purchases must be completed by 31st March 2023.
 
Under the Help to Buy scheme, first-time buyers purchasing a new-build home can pay a deposit of just 5% of a property’s value. Buyers can also take an equity loan of up to 20% of the cost of a new-build home (up to 40% in London), which is interest-free for the first five years. Regional price caps range from just over £186k in North East England to £600k in London.
 
If you are a first-time buyer looking for a new-build home, there is still time to take advantage of the Help to Buy scheme.
